Hello friends! The following Bible Treasure deals with giving gifts To The Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 25:31-46

31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.


BIBLE TREASURE

The above Parable deals with The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ
The ones on the Right Hand Of The King are the righteous (The Sheep) these are the ones who do what is right Before The Eyes Of The King.
The ones on the Left Hand are the impious (The Goats) these are the ones who do evil Before The Eyes Of The King.


When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:


And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world


For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat


I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink


 I was a stranger, and ye took me in


Naked, and ye clothed me


I was sick, and ye visited me


I was in prison, and ye came unto me.



Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:


For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat


I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink


I was a stranger, and ye took me not in


naked, and ye clothed me not


sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.



Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of theseye did it not to me.
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.




There are false teachers who teach that "works" are not necessary for salvation, only Faith is required. However, Faith without works is dead Faith, we must walk like Jesus Christ Walked. 
Believing in Jesus Christ is Good, however, it's good to remember that the devils also believe in Jesus Christ and tremble. 
The difference between Angels and devils isn't their belief In Jesus Christ, as they both believe. 
The difference between them is their works; Angels Do God's Will and devils don't do God's Will (This is the reason they fell with lucifer)
If we believe in Jesus Christ but we don't walk like He did (If we don't do God's Will) then who would you say our behavior is more similar to, Angels or devils?

James 2

2 My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons.
2 For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel, and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
3 And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool:
4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts?
5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.
12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.


If we believe in Jesus Christ, then we must walk like He did :D and if we do, believe me, the reward is much greater than anything we can physically imagine :)


1 John 2 

2 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.


John 13:1-17

13 Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.
2 And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;
3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;
4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
5 After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
6 Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet?
7 Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter.
8 Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
9 Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
12 So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?
13 Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am.
14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet.
15 For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
17 If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.

Please remember friends, our Lord Jesus Christ Came To Save us from our sins, to free us from sin
He Did Not Come to keep us in sin's captivity

Having Faith In Jesus Christ is needed, but if we have Faith In Him, shouldn't we show it? Shouldn't we be following Him, Walking as He Did? Otherwise how can we say we have Faith In Him? Do we not believe that He Can Free us from sin?
There is nothing impossible With God. 
I will share some of the victories my Lord Jesus Christ Has Given me:

*Victory over a pornography addiction
*Victory over smoking cigarettes
*Victory over arrogance
*Victory over using bad language 
*Victory over vanity (Used to have lots of piercings, bleached hair, and i was also bodybuilding for the wrong reasons. I'm still bodybuilding today, but only for God's Glory, As He Is The Only Reason i'm actually making lots of progress today)
*Victory over a video-game addiction I made the choice at some point in my life to destroy hundreds of videogames i had collected since i was a child, including xbox 360's top sellers, dreamcast's top sellers, super nintendo, playstation's top sellers, psp, game boy color, game boy advance, all in all hundreds and hundreds of videogames. I did this as an offering To God, Because He Had Done Great Miracles in my Life, and also because i needed His Help in my Life, as i was going through some rough patches (Demonic attacks, was hearing voices in my head, seeing snakes on my bed, and eyes on the walls, floors, etc. This all started to happen to me after i commited blasphemy against God, with no reason to have done so. Similar to what happened to King Nebuchadnezzor. I was too proud of myself at the time and didn't Give God The Honor that Belonged To Him) 
By giving this offering, i was able to manage my time better and made this work you are reading now, as well as other work i've done for Him. I play videogames again today, but i do so with moderation now, and i Attempt To Include God In Everything i do by Praising Him Spiritually for everything He Allows me to do and enjoy. 
Our Spiritual Journey is a Journey; we are always changing,  we are always learning.  I cannot truly say whether playing videogames is the best choice of time spending, but i can say that i do no evil whenever i play videogames, so i currently believe it's more a matter of what's in our hearts while we play videogames or do any other activity.
I Pray To God everyday that He Guides me in every choice i make
*Victory over materialism (No longer living for riches)
*Victory over a mundane life (Watching horror movies as my preferred choice, listening to negative heavy rock, negative rap; music with really negative lyrics etc. Desiring the wrong things; like fornication, riches, etc)
*Victory over selfishness 

There is much more, but from the above list you can tell i used to be the raw definition of a mundane man, living in sin's captivity, and a slave i certainly was (Although i didn't realize how much of a slave i was until my Lord Jesus Christ Freed me) 

I tried breaking free from some of the above sins on my own a couple of times, only to fail a couple of months later, and becoming more hooked. 
It was only after i submitted my life to my Lord Jesus Christ that i finally conquered those things and became Free as a result. 

You don't really realize how much of a slave you are until you're Free
I'm here to tell you that you don't have to be a slave to sin, once you break free from sin you Will Feel Free. There is a bit of a struggle at first (the devil wants you to fail and he will try to persuade you into accepting a life of servitude to sin) but you must pray to The Lord Jesus Christ and He Will Rescue you, Setting you Free.

You Will Be born a new man/woman With Jesus Christ

***Special Information :D***

I am going to share what unfortunately in today's day and age is a secret to most people.
Through prayer and devotion to my Lord Jesus Christ i have started noticing certain things that were once hidden from me due to my own lack of obedience (Sinning

I have noticed that whenever a sin is committed (Lying, coveting, lusting, etc) there is an instant demonic influence that affects the behavior of the person committing the sin. (Similarly to the picture above, but not exactly)

I want you to check what i am saying for yourself: Any time you catch yourself or someone else committing a sin, examine your/their behavior after the sin is committed. You will notice a very radical change in your/their personality. (Remember to treat others, and yourself with kindness, compassion, and patience)

I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that what happens after committing a sin is that the person who does it enters into demonic territory, and this usually leads to more sins, bringing more trouble into the person's life.
Let's keep in mind that sin is compared to leprosy in The Holy Bible.
Leprosy is a disease in which a person's nerves become numb and thus loss of extremities caused by repeated injuries or infection due to unnoticed wounds may occur. 
Leprosy is very similar to sinning. After continuous sinning occurs, a person starts to become spiritually numb, constantly making the wrong spiritual choices and going down a path of perdition.

A lot of the trouble we face in this life is a direct result of sinning


I know this now after 27 years of living on this earth and never realizing it (I was used to sinning and was blinded by it)
I give thanks to my Lord Jesus Christ very often for opening my eyes and revealing this to me. 
Avoiding sin is extremely crucial for our souls, and it does take a lot of the problems we face away.
The only way to stop sinning is to Follow The Lord Jesus Christ (Keeping His Commandments, Keeping His Word, Being Obedient To Him Who Died for us
it is not possible to stop sinning on our own (Ever heard of people quitting something that was bad for them, only to come back to it? This is only an example, and although it is possible to quit one thing on our own, this does not eradicate every single sin from our life. In order to do this, we need our Lord Jesus Christ's Help)
The good news is that without sin we start to transform, we are then born again in our Lord Jesus Christ and believe me that this should be The Top Priority in every human being's life.

John

8 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.
25 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? And Jesus saith unto them, Even the same that I said unto you from the beginning.
26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.
27 They understood not that he spake to them of the Father.
28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
33 They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35 And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
37 I know that ye are Abraham's seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my word hath no place in you.
38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.
41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.
42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.
43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
46 Which of you convinceth me of sin? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me?
47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
48 Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, Say we not well that thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil?
49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me.
50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
52 Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and thou sayest, If a man keep my saying, he shall never taste of death.
53 Art thou greater than our father Abraham, which is dead? and the prophets are dead: whom makest thou thyself?
54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
55 Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
